Profile
“I enjoy working with motivated individuals who are ready to get a handle on their mental health needs.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I previously worked in primary care. I found it interesting that I saw so many patients in need of mental health care. I went back to school to become a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. I have worked in healthcare for over 15 years. I have been a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner for over seven years and a family nurse practitioner for 11 years. I have worked in outpatient and inpatient settings. I also teach graduate students in family and psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner programs.
What should someone know about working with you?
I will collect a complete history first. I will explain what I feel is the best plan of action for you, the expected outcomes, and potential side effects (if medications are indicated). We will work as a team to optimize your mental health. I enjoy working with motivated individuals who are ready to get a handle on their mental health needs. I enjoy building relationships and working together. It may take a while to get things stable, but I never give up on getting you where you want to be.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I was raised to treat everyone equally. I believe that everyone deserves respect and to be treated like a human being. There is no greater reward than being able to help clients. I take the time to hear each one without judgment or preconceived notions about who I think they are as a person.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am most excited about being able to help clients remotely via technology. Not only is this convenient, but it allows me to help clients that I would not be able to help due to limitations of location. I am also excited about the use of ketamine in the treatment of depression. I believe that it will be helpful in other areas of psychiatric treatment in the future.
What populations have you worked with in the past?
I have worked in outpatient and inpatient settings with clients of all ages. My youngest client was four-years-old and the oldest was over ninety-years-old. I have also worked with semi-inpatient populations, including partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient care. I enjoy working with all people, including the vulnerable (such as clients who are incarcerated). I have worked with inpatient geriatric clients and in correction settings. There are not many settings where I have not had some experience. I look forward to treating all clients regardless of age, diagnosis, or race.
